Happy birthday OT!

Dear OT,

I wish you all the best for your first birthday. I apologise that this is coming a bit later than the congratulations from my fellow OT-ters (otters?), but it’s been that kind of day. And that kind of week. And, kind of, that kind of year. And in a way, it may be appropriate that I am a bit late – after all, I was also late in joining when you first got going.

Anyway.

You’re turning one today, which is – it seems to me – a good age for a site set up by a group of bloggers as dissimilar as us here on OT. My husband also had a birthday this week (it was a round one – he’s in denial). Here’s a picture of him around age 18, which was a very long time ago indeed and which kind of shows how much can change in a lifetime:

We’ll see what the next year brings for you, OT. In any case, here’s to you.

About steffi suhr

Once upon a time, I was an enthusiastic and hopeful biological oceanographer who did a bunch of work in the Antarctic. I was alternately wearing labcoats or extreme weather clothing and hard hats, but have long since swapped survival suits for dress suits and do science management, currently as the BioMedBridges project manager at the European Bioinformatics Institute. I still like to use my brain. I'm a German serial expat, currently - again - living in the UK.

    “Otters” – heh. :)

    Also – your husband looks remarkably like a cow in that photo… or maybe a horse. He must be a very, very old one by now I would think.

    I like otters and can’t believe no-one’s thought of that before now!

    I’m so glad you decided to join us over here, Steffi!
